Thank you! Haha, yeah knew it was also aliterary device but the essay question was on structure



Sorry to bother you again, could paradoxical oxymoron also be a structural device?

That is similar to the extended metaphor thing. It depends on what the oxymoron is - if it is just two words then it is merely an aspect of language (it is anyway)

But if it is an 'extended' paradoxical oxymoron, then it is a structural device as well.
